Birthday Scribbles and some Silliness...MUSE #136, CASology #167~ Silly

Hello again,

Two more cards from my mini craft-a-ganza that I'll share quickly as my bed is calling...

Joan's wonderful card over at MUSE #136

*nearly* got the best of me, until I remembered: I do not watercolour!  Whew!  Once that was established (Mr. Recycle Bin's tummy was nigh close to bursting!), I went with another strategy: sponged colours (pink, yellow and blue) and *flowers*.  Mood when done: happy.  Very happy!  Hope you like my translation, Joan!


My second card is just sheer fun and how wonderful to have a chance to share it at CASology#167~Silly



Does this card look like it's staring at you?  Nothing better than big, goofy, googly-eyes!

Thanks so much for dropping by!

To all my wonderful friends:  HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! I'm so grateful that you're part of  my life and oh, how you've enriched it...

Hugs,

  13. LOVE your thought process - "do not watercolor"!!! You handled it well and came through with beautifully sponged flowers!

  14. These are both such wonderful cards. I really like all your sponged die cuts, and how you made your sentiment part die cut and part stamped. And, your eye ball card--so totally silly and fun. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

  21. Gorgeous 'scribble flower' card. I think it is a fabulous interpretation of Joan's card. Love the blue tinted leaves!

    The first thing that popped into my head when 'eye' spied your googly eyed card was "the little ones are going to be all over this card!". So stinkin' cute!

  26. You might be surprised by what those Scribble flowers would look like out of the recycle gin paper, Carol. What you did is so soft and lovely and perfect for the challenge, though. And yes there is something staring at me from your blog. I don't know whether to laugh or be scared. ;)
